COLCMS is a nut free school. Companies often change manufacturing processes or ingredients, requiring the label to be read each time. We have children who have life-threatening nut allergies as well as toddlers who have not yet been exposed to nut. No amount of nut is safe, including food with traces of nuts or food made on shared equipment.
We have a milk protein allergy. Please check that crackers and bread do not contain milk as a listed ingredient. ‘May contain milk’ or ‘processed in a facility that also processes milk’ is ok.
Organic food is strongly preferred. We really appreciate you making the effort to buy organic for our toddlers, especially fruits, vegetables and dairy products. Thank you in advance for helping make snack healthy, safe, and delicious!
TOO BUSY TO SHOP? We love to handle shopping and delivery! Simply let Stefanie know by Friday the week before and send $90 cash or check made out COLCMS. You can also click the PayPal link below to pay online.
Toddler Shopping List This list is for the full week. If we need more of something we will let you know. Brands listed are milk and nut free suggestions. A full class can easily eat a big container of fruit and box of crackers at one snack. Thank you in advance from Ms. Oana, Ms. Alison and the children!
